how does ssl works?

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

I setup a http/https server on my router.
I also upload certification file and private key file to the router.
Does it need public key and IE has public/private
keys by default talk to my router?
Does the certification only make sure the server
he/she connect to is correct? (from secrity alert-->
view certificate. right?)

Thanks in advance!
